Client Gallery

The client pictures on this page are from our Instagram Feed. You can see my favorite pictures of our many clients. The feed also includes some of my IGTV videos. In addition, short demo clips showcase my play-based training style. I use Play to guide the dog's genetics towards the training goals. Further, it gives them biological fulfillment to make them happier beings.

Rocky just completed our Board & Train program. Play-based obedience training with Rocky. 😊

Toka was a long-term client. I knew and trained her when she was a 6-month-old puppy in 2013. Sadly, she passed away unexpectedly from illness in 2022. She had a great life with her family. She was loved and ate the best food you can buy. Unfortunately, some things are out of our control. Her owner painted this portrait of her, and it captures her well. We miss you, Toka! You were a great dog! 😭

We work with many dogs that have varying degrees of anxiety. For example, my favorite breed, the German Shepherd Dog is supposed to be unshockable by nature. This is based on the breed standard and origination. However, I work with many German Shepherd Dogs because they are fearful in some way. But fear isn't just rampant in German Shepherd Dogs. This affects all dog breed in the United States. I recently worked with a Belgian Malinois, who bit people coming to the home out of fear. This is equally disturbing. Fear and anxiety in dogs are some of the most common challenges we are contacted for. The reasons for this fear epidemic in dogs are multifold... 😊 Read more: https://socal.dog/Fear

Summer is here and many of us like to go on vacation or road trips during this time of year. But what about your canine family member? Ideally, your dog gets to come along and several websites can help find accommodations away from home for you and your dog. Separation from the family, especially for an extended period is stressful to most dogs. So, if you can avoid it, please do. Some dogs handle these separations better than others, but no dog enjoys being left behind. In case your buddy can’t join in, boarding your dog at a good daycare and boarding facility can be an option. Let’s look at some considerations to keep in mind... 😊 Read more: https://socal.dog/Daycare

Guest Post by internationally acknowledged dog trainer Chad Mackin.
.
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about pit bulls lately. Some written in defense of them, others on why their history makes them more dangerous than other dogs. Almost everything I’ve read misses the point in big ways. So, let’s get our hands dirty and get into some controversy, shall we?
.
If you take either of the following lines about pit bulls, you are probably not going to like what I will say.
.
Contrary to what many believe, it isn’t all in how you raise them. The fact that pit bulls were originally bred for fighting doesn’t automatically make them aggressive. And no, they were never (as far as I can tell) called "Nanny Dogs," ... 😊 Read more: https://socal.dog/Pitbull

Leash aggression in dogs is one of those phrases we hear regularly. Most dog owners use this term if their dog loses their mind at other dogs, or people, or cars, or bikes, or whatever, when on a leash. Off-leash the dog may even be totally fine. Just on a leash, it acts like a lunatic. Read More: https://SoCal.Dog/LeashAggression

Much of what is called dog misbehavior is rooted in genetic frustration. Most dog misbehavior is not that but simply a normalβ€”and perfectly fineβ€”behavior expressed in an inappropriate context.
.
If a frustrated herding dog that lives in a backyard and just gets a walk here and there chases squirrels or rabbits in his yard, no one cares. If it does the same thing with kids on skateboards, people start caring rather quickly. However, it’s the same behavior. In one context it's perfectly okay. In another context not so much.

Clarity matters! Clarity matters in communicating with your dog, in training your dog, and in living with your dog harmoniously.
.
Not much enrages the temperaments of dog trainers more than arguing about the true nature of dogs. One would think that by now we would have settled this argument, but clearly, we haven't. And while we probably have as many opinions as we have dog trainers, most viewpoints fall somewhere on the spectrum of two major camps. Read more at: https://socal.dog/Clarity

Hiking with dogs is fun! I love hiking and especially enjoy bringing my dogs along. My hikes usually last anywhere from four to twelve hours and include significant elevation changes over distance in remote locations.
.
During my excursions into the wild, I learned a lot about hiking from an experienced friend; my regular hiking partner. I also made my own observations regarding human and canine needs on the trails. ... Read More: http://socal.dog/Hiking

Accidents happen and it is better to be prepared beforehand. This includes putting together a great first aid kit for your dog. Obviously, there are many dog first aid kits on the market and I have rarely seen one that was inherently bad. However, once you are in an emergency situation with your dog and only have one of these minimalist first aid kits, you wish you had planned better.
.
I have dealt with my fair share of emergency situations and have discovered which items are most valuable to have on hand and which not so much. This article covers what I have in my mobile dog first aid kitβ€”I also have a really big one for people and dogs but that is not something I would want to carry around. The first aid kit must be small and light enough to be carried or even attached to your dog’s vest, harness, or pouch, but still contain all vital components in case things go wrong.

When I was a less experienced trainer I always thought of food aggression in dogs as an issue of poor pack hierarchy in the home. I know many dog trainers continue to believe this. Today I know better. I wasn’t completely wrong back then, my knowledge was just incomplete. Food aggression in dogs can certainly be a rank issue but most of the time it just isn’t.
.
We generally distinguish two types of food aggression in dogs: a genetic predisposition and a learned behavior. The former is more common and has to be managed and the latter is less common but can be resolved. Read More: https://SoCal.Dog/FoodAggression

Stress in dogs is a fact of life. We all experience stress every day and must learn to develop some resilience to the daily life stresses we deal with. People without the ability to handle stress, can’t function in our world. This is the reason we coach our children how to maneuver life, but don’t do everything for them. We can’t shield them from everything as they grow up if we want them to be successful adults who live a rich life. Our kids need to learn how to cope with stress and not break when then things go wrong because they will. This is no different for dogs. ... Read more at https://socal.dog/Stress

Everyone wants positive training, right? Why wouldn't you? Negative training doesn't sound like a good idea. Or "force-based training"? Or "pain-based training"? Or ... And the list goes on and on.
.
.
Dog owners today are being brain-washed by organizations like PETA, the ASPCA or the Humane Society of America that all dog training must be positive and anything else is outdated, not science-based and doesn’t work. Is that really what science has to say on the matter?
.
.
Here is the problem. When well-intentioned people and organizations, who lack the most basic understanding of dog training, share their views, they are doing so from a perspective of ignorance. They are often uneducated on the facts and just go with their opinions and emotions. That may feel good but doesn’t help dogs and owners having a harmonious relationship.
.
.
Within the background of this minefield, I want to share some facts, I believe every dog owner should understand.

Dogs love to play! Some dogs prefer playing with toys and will enjoy some toys more than others. Some dogs enjoy playing with food and some dogs enjoy personal play. Just like with humans, Play is an essential part of canine development. Dogs that play and socialize regularly are healthier, more balanced, more curious, calmer, less reactive and just a lot more fun to live with.
.
If you want to have the best relationship you can have with your dog and you want your friend to be happy, make sure your furry family member gets to play with you, with other dogs, and with toys.
.
Play is fun, helps learning and supports mental health.
.
For this reason, play-based-training is the most enjoyable for your dog and leads to the fastest training results, while also improving your relationship. If learning doesn’t feel like work, you want to do more and learn faster, that is no different for your dog.

About Our Client Pictures

We can debate good dog training all day long but a picture says more than a thousand words. The client pictures give you a chance to see our adorable dogs. Further, the video clips show how I use positive and negative reinforcement to shape behaviors. In addition, you can watch how I use positive and negative punishment to stop behaviors. All, without creating fear, anxiety, undue stress, or apprehension towards me, as too many unskilled dog trainers claim would happen. Our client pictures shows you how I do things and how happy the dogs in training are. Even when they get a penalty here and there. How things are done matters a lot!

Play-Based Training is Science

During the play-based training sessions, I engage the dogs through the six aspects of Play. In short, they are searching, stalking, chasing, fighting, celebrating, and consuming. Every dog prefers some over others and during the training, we figure out how your dog likes to play best. Also, if he is a competitive or cooperative player. In addition. the client gallery shows how engaged dogs become if we know how to play best with them. Having your dog pay attention to you when it matters, comes from having this kind of relationship.

Our client pictures and videos showcase the correct application of actual learning science. In case you are interested, take a look at some of the 100+ peer-reviewed and independently validated studies I provide in my article Positive Dog Training. These form the foundation of over one hundred years of learning science. I hope you enjoy these client pictures. For full training video please visit our YouTube Channel.

If you are ready to schedule an appointment, you can reach me using our contact form.
